The press office of the National Security Authority in Armenia said today, Tuesday, that Brigadier General Hovhannes Karumyan, head of the intelligence department of the authority, was removed from his post.

The authority did not provide information on the reason for the dismissal of Karumyan.

This step comes a day after President Armen Sarkissian decided to dismiss the commander of the National Border Guard forces, Vagnak Sarkissian, from his post.

This was preceded by the dismissal of the Director of the National Security Agency, Argishti Karamyan, on 8 October.

The recent dismissals coincide with the call of the former Armenian Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Vazgen Manukyan to the country's government to submit its resignation and transfer power to the army in view of the conditions in the Karabakh region in light of the month-long fighting against the Azerbaijani forces.
